This elegant, high-ceilinged space in the city’s main art-gallery has been a favourite since it was opened in 1986 by the Allen family of Ballymaloe House fame. Breakfast and brunch is served from 8.30am to 11.30am, Monday-to-Saturday. The Crawford Cafe offers great food in a charming, relaxing space, right in the heart of the city.
The Crawford Café is located on the ground floor, and is open during Gallery opening hours. Serving delicious lunches, teas, coffees and cakes, it is a popular meeting place in Cork, and is under the management of Sineád Doran.
The Café provides a friendly informal eating place, while the ambience of the large dining room is enhanced with the display of works of art from the Crawford collection.
